Hmmm... This makes since. Good thing Amazon has the games I want, too. I didn't think to see if layaway is open on Thanksgiving. If Amazon posts that they are matching Walmart's price on that telescope, I don't think I'll be headed to Walmart, anyway. I shall see after Amazon makes their Monday announcement.



Thought I saw an 8pm somewhere. Too many numbers!!!!!:whee:

Ok. The different Event numbers. I remember the Walmart person mentioning event numbers and I see different ones in the ad with different times. So, as long as a person is going for games, all they have to think about is getting there for the 8pm start time on Thanksgiving.

:drool:Gonna have to type up a list after I see what Amazon has to say.


Some one replied to my original concern saying the sale is from Thur 8pm-fri 11pm. With that being the case it shouldn't be a problem, now it's a ymmv issue as some ppl have said their store denied the notion of being able to do this process.

I asked mine about if and they said no but that as long as your in the physical line when the sale starts and they no longer have a particular item, they will then give you a voucher to go online and purchase the item from the site for the sale price and its be shipped to store. So yea, conflicting reports.

I may try and talk to the DM of the store I'm thinking of going to and see what they say. I'll be sure to point them to Corporate on Facebook who says it's allowed.

Looking at the ad and there is no mention of a time frame as to the sales. Only lists a start time with the wording while supplies last. It shouldn't be a problem going to layaway when they re-open at 9AM on BF and picking up your stuff at the sale prices.


Hmm.. What if they sell out? No rainchecks.

It looks like Amazon has updated the Lightning Deals schedule with platforms listed next to the titles.


They also seemed to have removed those PS3 collections with controllers.

The pricing wouldn't change though I would think so when you went to pick up your stuff it should ring up correctly. I posted this earlier in this thread from the bfads.net site regarding this:

Some interesting news just came out by way of the Walmart Facebook page. A shopper asked if items on Layaway can be price-adjusted to their Black Friday prices to which Walmart answered: "If you have [any] item on Layaway and would like to receive the reduced price during our Black Friday sale the item(s) would need to be deleted from the Layaway account and added back to receive the event price (or price matched whichever is lower). Keep in mind layaway will be closed until 9am on Friday (11/23). Event prices for items sold during our first two sales events at 8pm 11/22 and 10pm 11/22 are only available while supplies last so they may be sold out when the Layaway desk reopens."

Here's the big loophole: all of Walmart's Black Friday "events" are while supplies last and don't have a definitive end time. The Walmart CSR seems to imply that with layaway being closed until 9am, the items from the first two events will be sold out and you won't be able to put them on layaway.

But what happens if you put the items on layaway now? Won't Walmart keep those items reserved? If so, shouldn't those items be guaranteed behind the counter should you want to pick them up on Black Friday?

It will probably be hard (or even impossible) to find the Vizio 60" HDTV and the Compaq Laptop in your local store now, but if you had your heart set on all the video-games and movie titles on sale, you might be in luck.

But that's not all because Walmart's price-match policy is in full-effect on Black Friday! That means you can layaway products from competitor stores and price-match them during Black Friday – opening up a world of possibilities.

Kinda underwhelmed with the black friday deals that have been announced so far. I'm hoping amazon puts out more deals on the day of, but so far, my list is as follows:

Gamestop:
Borderlands 2
Dishonored

Best Buy:
Assassin's Creed 3

Wal Mart/Amazon:
NBA 2k13(I doubt I'd get it from Wal Mart, so I'll try to get it from Amazon on thanksgiving. It's going to be a bummer though if amazon is really only selling it for 360.)

I might also buy God of War, GT5, Ratchet and clank, etc., but only if I feel like it.

Honestly, if I can get what's on my list, I'm pretty much set until GTA5 comes out. Sadly, due to school, and other stuff going on in life, my gaming time has taken a massive hit. :(

Nope, that is 8 and 9pm your time. Walmart refuses to get shown up again by Toys R Us and the like, So by this time next year, you will be eating a turkey in a line to buy crap at 4pm.

I think I'm just going to wait for the steam deals this year. I have a nice list of games I want to get: walking dead, darksiders 2, dishonored, and sleeping dogs. Gamefly is tempting, but I'll wait for steam.

Man, Black Friday seems to be working against me again. For the Black Fridays where I wanted to get a PS3, I would mostly find deals on the Xbox 360. This year, when I want to get a 250 GB Xbox 360, I would mostly see deals on the PS3. ;/

And where are the deals on the Vita memory cards. I need a 32 GB for the new Playstation Plus promo for the Vita this Tuesday., but I don't need it at $80.
Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

A couple of stores have the 250 GB bundle for $200 or GS throws in BLOPS 2 for the normal $250.

Very underwhelmed by Amazon deals. There aren't any must have games for me like last year. AC3 I want but I'll want until that hits $20 in January.

Even if I really wanted any of their deals, I don't have any faith that I'll click within nanoseconds to get the deal I want. What's the certainty people here have on getting stuff? From all the comments last year, a lot of people thought it was messed up. My and my girlfriend clicked the second the deal came up and didn't make it. I ended up going to best buy after midnight without standing in any line and got the games I wanted at the same price.
